    +1 on this.

    Also the top notes of New York Oud have a prominent plum note as well, though they don't stick around for the full ride.

    lol yourself, no need to be dickish about it. I meant Canali Black Diamond, but it's probably not the plum noted one I was thinking of. Anyway, everything everyone else says is wrong anyway right since you're the expert...

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I love AL02, but I find it more a stewed fruit scent rather than fresh plum. That being said, it might be the best stewed prune note you've ever seen.

    hmm, is it stewed the way uncle Serge does it? If it is, I might have to try it.

    Stewed the same way but not the same fruits. I once did some kitchen tomfoolery involving burnt sugar, apricots, and cumin and that sauce reminded me strongly of the Arabie accord. AL02 is more apples, pears, plums stewed with some cinnamon-clove combo. If you could extract the fruit from Fille En Aiguilles ( which strikes me as a sort of apple-steam note ), it's be the closest among Serge's line-up.

    Boss Bottled has tad bit of a plum in notes composition and that shows on my skin. Amouage Silver Cologne is, however, another level and much more better and refined than the former mentioned.

    Took me a while to read a few NY Ouds, but the more I wear it, the more the plum sticks out. Also, Frank no. 2 as others have suggested.
